Will can’t seem to get his life together. College abroad drags on when the only thought on his mind is putting that chapter to an end. Returning to Nottingham where the nightlife is a collage of sex, alcohol, and the many vices of a decaying society, any future is hard to see. The hostel, his home for a time, is a mix of over-indulgent weekenders and people from across the globe trying to slowly carve out lives for themselves. All gamble on success or being cast to the wayside. When a French woman walks the path of self-identity and a romance unfolds, Will is forced to give his life shape for better or for worse. Gritty and untamed, Hostile Living is that hopeful pursuit of something better when the world demands self-destruction.
